#288: Wonderful Peace

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)


Far away in the depths of my spirit tonight

Rolls a melody sweeter than psalm;

In celestial-like strains it unceasingly falls

O’er my soul like an infinite calm.


Peace! peace! wonderful peace,

Coming down from the Father above,

Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray,

In fathomless billows of love.


What a treasure I have in this wonderful peace

Buried deep in the heart of my soul,

So secure that no power can mine it away

While the years of eternity roll.



I am resting tonight in this wonderful peace,

Resting sweetly in Jesus’ control,

For I’m kept from all danger by night and by day,

And His glory is flooding my soul.



And me-thinks when I rise to that city of peace

Where the Author of peace I shall see,

That one strain of the song which the ransomed will sing

In that heavenly kingdom shall be:



Ah! soul, are you here without comfort and rest,

Marching down the rough pathway of time?

Make Jesus, your friend ere the shadows grow dark —

O accept this sweet pace so sublime!
